  • Indian Land pride on display April 2-9

    The first Indian Land Community Clean-up Week set for April 2-9 is a hands-on opportunity to teach children (and folks of all ages) civic responsibility. Indian Land’s scenic byways have become increasingly littered by uncovered garbage trucks, windblown trash from construction sites, loading docks, unsecured recyclables and illegal dumping.

  • Mulvaney not practicing what he preaches

    I find it interesting that Representative “Mick” Mulvaney decided to take advantage of the health care available to congressional members.
    This plan is heavily subsidized with broad choices, generous provisions and low premiums.  
    This is available at lower rates because it has about 8 million policyholders nationwide.
    This situation reflects the unfairness and uncaring attitude that has been demonstrated by many politicians, most of whom are members of the Republican Party.

  • Volatile statements could incite criminal acts

    In a recent letter to shareholders, Warren Buffet, Berkshire Hathaway chairman, said he has some money to spend on new assets for his company. He reported he has $38 billion in cash to invest.
    “Our elephant gun has been reloaded and my trigger finger is itchy,” Buffet said.
    What can the man mean by making such a volatile statement that could incite serious criminal activity?
    Sarah Palin made a similar comment about targeting Congressional districts and she was unmercifully attacked by the liberal media.

  • Seniors grateful for shoe box gifts

    The Council on Aging Heath Springs Lunch Bunch, home-delivered seniors, Heath Springs community shut-in seniors, Mount Calvary Outreach seniors in Kershaw and Kershaw community shut-in seniors would like to express our utmost appreciation to the Hillside High School Class of 1970 for the wonderful shoe box gifts for Christmas.
    Words cannot adequately express our sincere appreciation to the class of 1970 for the love you have shown us.
    Please be assured that the boxes contained useful items that will carry us well into the new year.

  • Candidates must be truthful and trustworthy

    The Republican primary election for Senate District 16 is over.  The voters have spoken – loudly and clearly – that Greg Gregory is the best person for this office. Greg will represent us competently and energetically as he has done in the past. The citizens of Lancaster County should be very grateful that he chose to return to politics.

    Congratulations, Greg.

  • Ounce of prevention worth pound of cure

    In recent weeks, the debate on the county’s dog ordinances has come back into the spotlight. I have read several criticisms of the current ordinances and as one of the members of the committee who helped write these, I wished to address my views on this very important topic.

  • Study is waste of taxpayer money

    This is in response to a recent article about the Friends of Indian Land (FOIL) published in The Lancaster News. According to one of the Lancaster County Council members, FOIL members do really good research. It seems to me that they didn’t do any research on the housing development that they chose to live in. If they had, they would have known that it is built next door to an industrial park.
    I think it is a waste of taxpayer money for the county to spend on some dumb study just to please these people.

  • County, state should have enough money to fix our roads

    I am sure most everyone is aware of how bad our roads are. They are getting in worse shape, especially on Potter Road, Camp Creek Road and S.C. 200 from the end of the four-lane section almost to the Catawba River bridge. I would think the state has enough money given the extra road tax in the county and the money generated from the state sales tax.

  • Horton has opened my eyes to landfill issue

    Garbage has to be dumped somewhere, but not in my backyard, well at least not North Carolina’s. It is so easy to slumber through issues that seemingly don’t affect us. Hang on! This guy named Gary Horton opened my eyes with his article in Friday’s paper.
    My neighborhood on Charlotte Road is busy as a bee. So much so that I have long delays pulling out of my driveway. Now, our county administration is mulling over the merits of some new funds in the treasury versus about 176 dump trucks hauling garbage right down in front of my home.

  • Let officials, unemployed change roles for one week

    Everywhere you look prices are rising – from gas to food, clothing and taxes. The only thing not increasing is jobs. How can people live with everything rising except their pay? There’s nothing being done to put folks back to work. But there’s a lot of focus on price hikes. For those of us who don’t have jobs, we can’t afford to live.
